Quick Male Card

Standard

I made this real quickly for a male cousin of my husband’s, whose birthday is this week. ¬†Embossed on to brown card and used Treasure Gold for metal look. ¬†Used Forever Friends paper by Papermania for background and die cut a tag out of it. ¬†Message is from my stash.

Green and unusual

Standard

Ok, I confess, I had embossed this paper with a leaf pattern and really liked it but didn’t know what to do with it.  So I added these die cuts and words and leaves….hope it works for an unusual Xmas card….?!

I used Xcut build a scene house dies, Xcut word die and Xcut holly border dies.

Men’s Suits!

Standard

Again, Xcut dies, these men’s suits are so cute, and take me back to my childhood of dressing up my Bunty cut out clothes! These cards are unadorned, but I may try and make an easel card with more space for embellishments.  I used Mod Podge on the black lapels and pockets and pipe, and they came up like leather, so looked great!

Build a Scene!

Standard

I finally bought myself the lovely Xcut Build a Scene Fireplace dies, and this is my first attempt.  I would’ve like a matted gold card for the front, but didn’t have any! I just love the little Xcut word dies! I also like that you can use the many elements separately. Hmmm, I feel a few ideas coming on…..


Love

Standard

This simple card is made from die cutting a butterfly (Xcut) and then cutting again onto printed paper, which I then stamped with the matching stamp.  Added a little Love word die. I penned the line around the edges.  Maybe this would make a good Valentine card?
